We stayed here partly due to the very positive reviews, and also because of the lack of decently priced accommodation in Bath itself. We were not disappointed. Rowena greeted us like old friends and gave us a tour - a lovely house where we immediately just felt at home. We had booked a room in the Coach house, so she showed us 2 of the upstairs room so we could choose - again, just a nice touch. The room itself was a good size, with a very generous bathroom - big fluffy towels and robes too - and some nice tolietries too (sorry Rowena we did take a couple of bottles and the shoe shine!!). Huge LCD TV and a very comfy memory foam bed. Great room - not too posh, just really comfortable. Breakfast the following morning was sadly too rushed - our fault entirely as we were heading to the Rugby - so we did not have time to really enjoy what was an excellent continental spread (with optional cooked) and of course the sparkling wine......note to self - when staying at Woolverton, make sure you allow more time to enjoy your breakfast!!!!!. We met Mike who was equally as nice and welcoming - and who was kind enough to post back the mirror we left in the room - great service!. Lovely people, lovely hotel - its only 11 miles from Bath so an easy drive if thats your destination.
Oh, and we could have stayed 2 nights for the price of 1 as we were there for the Rugby - worth knowing if we draw Bath again......!
